Dylan Yang And Peace Demonstrations In Wausu

Thursday, June 02, 2016

This was a good article to read and the show of solidarity is great to see.

Dylan Yang's mother, Anna Vue, was among the hundreds of demonstrators in downtown Wausau on Tuesday, assembled to protest injustice and bullying and to show support for Yang and his family. The Save Our Children peace march was a protest and a response to the March trial of 16-year-old Dylan Yang, who was convicted as an adult of first-degree reckless homicide [...] Others came to show solidarity. Tony Gonzalez, the executive director of Comunidad Hispana in Merrill, attended and called for equal justice for everyone. Alix Shabazz came from Madison with the group Freedom Inc. "As a black person, I stand in solidarity with the Hmong community and with Dylan Yang," Shabazz said. "America has never been beautiful for people of color."
